Question about Philips Senseo HD-7810 Coffee Maker
I had the same problem after only a few months. There is a float at the side of the water resivour, this float also has a magnet attached to it and for some reason becomes lodged at the bottom of the tank, telling the machine that there is not enough water in the tank, even when there is. Use a magnet on the outside of the resviour, connect it to the one on the inside and lift very slowly upwards...Hey presto the light stops flashing and the water boils

I had the same problem - my husband discovered that there is a magnet inside the water tank which floats when the tank is filled. The magnet turns on a switch in the machine when the reservoiur is full. However, the magnet in ours was stuck at the bottom even when the tank was full, so the machine thought the tank was always empty! This probably happened due to a built up of limescale. I bought a new tank from Amazon and the problem was thus solved without having to buy a new machine. I shall try and descale the tank and then I'll have a spare.

I also had the same problem. I didn't take my machine apart, though. I just filled the reservoir, and noticed that the float wasn't moving. So I emptied it, tapped it on the side of the sink, and now it's floating again. Try that first-save money and frustration! (And keep a french press on hand for emergencies!)

I had the same problem. When i tilted the water container back it would heat the water but once fully inserted it was blinking like there was no water present. I disassembled the back of the coffee maker and checked out the water level sensor. That was working ok. Then I tried using the magnet in the water container to check the sensor which was also ok. Then i noticed that once water was inserted into the water canister the float (level float)did not move, So there is the problem. I then just bridged the water level sensor and the machine is working again. the only setback is that I now have to make sure there is enough water in the tank as otherwise the pump will run dry and burn out.
